When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.
As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.

(at around 30 mins) During the after party battle in the Avengers building, several of the non-powered Avengers (War Machine, Iron Man and Hawkeye) are shown undergoing impact that should have either severely injured or killed them. War Machine (Rhodes) is shown being thrown through a plate glass 15-20 feet away and then falling an additional 20-30 to a concrete deck below. Iron Man (Tony Stark) is shown landing on a concrete staircase in manner that demonstrated he didn't prepare for the fall beforehand. Both should have been seriously injured or even killed from their impacts and yet later are shown only having lacerations and bruises to show for their troubles. See more »
[the Avengers are in the process of infiltrating a HYDRA base in Sokovia]
Report to your stations immediately. This is not a drill. We are under attack!
[Tony hits the shield around the base]
Language! Jarvis, what's the view from upstairs?
The central building is protected by some kind of energy shield. Strucker's technology is well beyond any other Hydra base we've taken.
Loki's scepter must be here. Strucker couldn't mount this defense without it. At long last.

I can't say the film didn't lack action because it didn't, every minute was filled with brilliant effects and amazing shots. An action packed adrenaline ride all through. However this said the film lacked story. At first the film was taking over from the first avengers, the story was good. But somewhere into the film the story fell apart with too much happening and without the solid story line it felt weak, with no real connections at all there was just fighting and action all over. I thought from what little story this film had to offer it was a lot more comic based than the previous one. The main villain in this film felt like a weakly based character, he had little to do with the story and was probably a contributing factor into it's downfall.
In conclusion I thought that the action, acting and effects are among the best, however the weak story left me with a far different feeling to the first. I thought although this film was great for a sequel it wasn't as good as the first. The film felt like it was meant to put a story across ready for the next film, which I hope will have a better story and live up to my expectations! However if for now you're looking for a great action film this is definitely a great one to watch, even though the story was weak and lacked that edge it is still a great film and hopefully will make an even better trilogy!
